If you can't understand the difference, then you shouldn't be in this stock. It is not helpful to IPWR to post stuff that shows you don't know the space.
There are several posters here that simply have no idea what they are posting. Sad.
It is all around us. Yet it doesn't seem to have touched the market in proportion--it will.
Fortunately IPWR will benefit from fear and uncertainty as it weaves its way into the fabric of our world.
Will you blink when you face your fear??
YieldCo model is under pressure--look at what has happened to SUNE over the same 6 months--OUCH.
HASI is closer than you think to the YieldCo model.
just very few are being bought by developers for projects since they rarely make financial sense.
That said, the Eaton 1670 is actually a very good product for 20MW larger solar projects on land that is FLAT and CHEAP.
Building any larger is financial suicide if you plan to serve solar projects.
Even operating at 1500V the amount of wire you need to tie in all the PV modules served per inverter would be astronomical using even a 3 MW central inverter! Even if the copper were free, the trenching and labor used laying the wires would be challenging. Ever try to bend a large copper wire??
In case you still don't understand, this is not good idea.
that is 1500Volts NOT Megawatts. you can't even get that straight. We used to run at 480 om the U.S. until 1000V became a better option--1500V is the next step.
Steven Lacey can't get this head around the facts either. Inverters are rated in AC power--NOT #$%$ Volts.
The headline of the message is the headline--NO "blocks" mentioned there so you aren't correcting anything in my post. The actual PR is why I pointed out the error in the message.
there are many bi-directional inverter options in the market. However, none are as light and as small as IPWR's--and Ideal's are equally efficient at inversion/conversion.
Your headline is INCORRECT. GE is developing "blocks" of inverters that together will be "20-30MW". NO inverters will be that large since scaling is counter productive around 1.5 MW--wind can utilize larger but solar simple has no use for any inverter over 1 MW--potential for longer system downtime and logistics of siting large inverters makes this case obvious to anyone performing cost benefit analysis. The solar industry is actually moving into the smaller string inverters and away from large centralized inverter system architectures.
IPWR's 125 product should do just fine for multi MW PV projects.
Growing R&D expenses while driving toward profitability will need to be balanced--not an easy task for IPWR and even tougher for investors to "see the future" of IPWR.
as if first solar and Sunpower had anything to do with it. it is The DEBT stupid.
NOTE: Duke has 15% of the storage market in the U.S. LG Chem sources from IPWR for smaller projects needing bidirectional inverter. Shipping costs for this PH model aren't cheap and installation requires a crane and team. IPWR's 125s in series could be a more effective solution--the modularity could allow for more efficient O&M and less downtime. (switch out the 125 component w/a new one brought in the truck roll in case it can't be fixed on-site). Fixing the PH inverter could mean several days of downtime depending on replacement parts...etc.
From a recent PR:
LG Chem delivered the project’s energy storage operating system, comprised of advanced lithium-ion batteries, while Parker Hannifin supplied a 2-MW power conversion inverter for the project.
“This system is another step for Duke in the development of turnkey energy storage solutions that benefit customers and demonstrate the potential for future applications, such as large-scale integration of renewable energy onto the grid,” Grigsby said.
you are getting distracted by your own proclivities.
there aren't enough buyers/sellers looking at IPWR for what you say to hold true.
I could care less about what brokers say. The products are real, have competitive advantages, and are getting purchased and installed by the top tier storage developers.
Fact is that if I wasn't in the business, I would not touch this stock given the information I have, and that the stock markets are absurdly inflated by Fed Policy.
some shorts will make a lot of money on this group of lemmings. Oprah will be shorting it all the way down. At these ownership levels she has to maintain a shadow short or she is stupid--NOT.
the strong will ride another $3 down to almost $0.
Face it. Sunedison is going to stiff its retail shareholders by reorganizing under bankruptcy. They have no option.
you are kidding yourself. Nobody will give SUNE the money it needs to pay its debt.
Retail investors will be washed out completely.
